Everyone loves a good day at the beach, especially when it’s spent with their family. As exciting as it may be for your kids, building sandcastles again and again can grow rather dull. To switch things up a little bit, here are nine things you can do to keep you and the kids entertained at the beach:


1 – Build the Ultimate Sandcastle

Sandcastles are made of sand, water and shells. These are just the basics, but you can step it up a notch. Before heading out to the beach, take a walk and pick up some pebbles, flowers, pinecones, sticks, and any other items that you think may be perfect for decorating your ultimate sandcastle. Don’t limit yourself to buckets and shovels. Use bowls to create domes, cups to build trivets, and spoons and forks to add some detail. You can even use pretty looking shells, sea glass, and driftwood to build a beautiful drawbridge. Complete it with canals, a city, and decorations. Be aware that you may find other kids wanting to join in. Invite them and let everyone have fun!


2 – Create a Mosaic

If you just realize that you’ve collected too many shells to bring home, why not create a mosaic on the beach? Look for more beautiful shells and pebbles to create your piece of art. Once you’re done with your mosaic, take pictures and add it to your album. It will be a memory you will cherish forever.


3 – Try a Beach Obstacle Course

You and your kids will definitely enjoy a physical activity out in the open. Set up games like running in water, walking on a giant log, or hopping over a sand barrier. Look for whatever is available at wherever you’re going and let your creativity take over.


4 – Pack a Beachside Picnic

Depending on the location, some beaches provide kiosks to grab food and drinks. However, a beach day is the perfect opportunity to pack a nice outdoor picnic! Pack your favorite sandwiches, drinks, and snacks. Don’t forget to bring a mattress or a blanket to give you a nice sand-free area to sit on while you satisfy your growling tummy.


5 – Construct a Fort

Want to play snowballs, or in this case, sandballs? Set up forts as a defense. Look for driftwood or even create large sand barriers before you let those sandballs fly!


6 – Bring Pool Floats

Looking to have a relaxing time at the beach? Bring some floats and relax offshore. Just make sure the waves aren’t too large and that you won’t be carried too far away from the beach. You can even use a surfboard, which serves the dual purpose of, well, surfing!


7 – Paint Rocks for Others to See

Bring along some markers with you when you head to the beach so that you can do a little art while you relax. Grab some rocks or pebbles around you and paint on them. Write down some inspirational quotes or just straight-up color them. After you’re done, spread the joy and place them around the beach on the sand and driftwoods. Who knows? Someday, you just may find your rock in someone else’s social media post!


8 – Have a Scavenger Hunt

This is one of the failsafe activities that your kids will love. Sure, it will take a little extra planning, but there’s nothing better than seeing the delight on your kids’ faces as they scurry around the beach, searching for the items that will help them win the game!


9 – Enjoy Sports and Games

With its soft sands and beautiful waters, there is no better place to practice sports than the beach. Play football, frisbee, racket, and other games with your family! Just make sure that you do not disturb anyone else on the beach. If anyone else wants to join, invite them, and make new friends! If you don’t have any equipment with you, create your own beach games and just have fun!
